Hi Peter  welcome5

Is your central locking and windows working normally on all doors.

Whats the condition of the battery fuse box (any signs of melting).
2016 Vauxhall Insignia Elite Nav in White 2.0CDTI Manual.
2009 Kia Sedona GS In Black 2.9CRDI 183PS. 5 Speed Manual WAV.
2003 MK2 Galaxy Ghia In Solid Black 1.9 TDI 115PS. 5 Speed Automatic.

Upgraded Eberspaecher booster heater  to independent heating with 7 day timer.

With VCDS lite (full version) need a code clearing or want to scan for faults in the north kent area, PM me.
All for a pint of Strongbow.

You need to get an ammeter on it and see what the drain is and then start isolating circuits.

While your there, after the cars been running for a bit, check if those cables are getting hot - if they are you need to fix the damage by soldering/replacing the connectors and soldering the cables onto them as the original joints are not particularly well made. If its done in time you can rescue the fusebox.
